Homemade Chewy Granola Bars

These are seriously yummy!

Granola bars are expensive, and Rebekah can't have most of them anyway, so I decided to try and make homemade ones.  I used this recipe.  I didn't toast the oats and almonds though (actually, I used pecans).  It seemed like extra work...  I used half raisins, half cranberries.  They were much sweeter than I expected, which makes the kids love them all the more!  I wish they stuck together a little better (Joshua really makes a mess!), but I individually wrapped them in plastic wrap and am keeping them in the fridge.  If you have a recipe for homemade granola bars, I'd love for you to share it with me!

Strawberry Rhubarb Jam

Strawberry picking time!  We picked 20 lbs of strawberries this week.  Caleb and Rebekah were great pickers this year.  They also washed them all and picked off the stems!  I made A LOT of jam.  I made several pints of plain strawberry jam, and then I also made strawberry rhubarb jam that is delicious!  I used this recipe.

Joshua's favorite part was eating the strawberries of course!

I hope everyone's having a great summer!
